Parts of London Road and Queens Road in Heeley have been closed by police, after a van crashed into The Chapel Jewellers in London Road earlier this afternoon.Â
The owner of the business Tracy Thackeray-Howitt saidÂ three men, two on mopeds and one in the van arrived at about 3.20pm.
'They didn't get anything because I stood in their way so he couldn't ram it again. I didn't find it terrifying because this business is my life's work,' said Tracy, adding: 'We have good security measures and thankfully they all worked.
'Everybody is fine and no one is hurt.'
South Yorkshire Police are yet to comment on the incident, and it is not known how long the road closures will continue for.Â
